We aim to provide children with the knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build self-efficiency and resilience.  Our curriculum is designed to be flexible in order to offer bespoke sessions to the needs of our children.  The experiences that we provide aim to equip pupils to put their knowledge into practise as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts.

Relationship/Sex Education

Relationship and Sex Education (RSE), previously called Sex and Relationships Education, is a form of sex education taught in UK schools.  RSE focuses on exploring the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, having relationships, engaging in sex, and learning about human sexuality and sexual health.

The Department for Education has made changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation which came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements.  The statutory guidance can be found at:

As RSE can be a sensitive subject to teach, we have included some FAQ's you may wish to read:  

Which year groups are taught RSE?

RSE is taught from nursery right the way through the school to Year 6.  However, the content of RSE lessons differs for each year group.  If you look at the document at the bottom of the page, you will be able to clearly identify what is being taught in RSE for your child’s age range.

When is RSE taught during the academic year?

RSE lessons are taught throughout the year and embedded within our bespoke PSHE schemes of learning.  It is at the class teacher’s discretion as to where this appropriately fits into the year.

How will I know when my child is being taught RSE?

Prior to all RSE lessons being taught, we send a letter home to inform parents.
